Welcome to MyNissanLeaf.
I know because I dug those out myself from Nissan's website, and from there up to youtube.com (because Nissan's site from Japan is wicked slow)

Here is the source link I got them from:

Jay, I can't get those videos to work here, but it looks like they have footage of the three different startup sounds for the instrument cluster? If so, please stick it on YouTube!
Hey Bic.

I know right? Hard as heck to get them going. The Nissan media site is 'teh suq' as we say on the interwebs. If you are patient, and just source download it, it will come. Slowly. Eventually.

And yes the other video does have 3 start up sounds for the cluster. I do have that file as well, but it is wicked big. If you can't pull it down let me know (maybe they are really getting a run on it now), I will try to host it up soon regardless. I was just in a hurry to get the audible exterior sounds out.

Anyway, I'm not sure why Nissan is making this into an event. They can't possibly think we would welcome annoying sounds out of (finally) quiet vehicles. I'd have never mentioned it or enabled it until it is made mandatory by law.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017

Jay: Regardless of the source, the "backing up" clip is a fake. The car was NOT backing up: the video was played backwards, as I pointed out above. That sound was thus superimposed over the segment, and is not a bona fide recording of what one would hear when a Leaf backs up. The sound is possibly similar to this mock version, but we don't yet know for sure.

BTW, many "LOST" Fans think we have figured out what those numbers actually mean...

Ready?

They are from the passenger manifest of the flight... the "six" candidates :)

*IF* that mock backup sound is similar to the real thing, Nissan has certainly changed it from what I heard during the Leaf Tour. Listen to the difference in this video that I recorded (QuickTime format):
